Dear Friends and Family,
Watching God provide, guide, lead and teach us is amazing! Although sometimes we wonder and worry HOW? But AGAIN and AGAIN, we see OUR FATHER provide for us in ways we never would have dreamed. We are THANKFUL!! Our trip to Nevada, Washington and Idaho was a HUGE blessing to us! We are thankful for Friends and Family that God has brough into our lives! Thank you all for praying!
Naomi’s surgery went very well on Oct 29th, as scheduled. She was very brave. The doctor removed 80% of the birthmark on her forehead. The bandage still hasn’t fallen off yet, so we haven’t seen how it looks. In February she will have surgery again to remove the rest of her birthmark. Then we will head back to Papua New Guinea!
